Release Blitz with Review: The Godparent Trap by Rachel Van Dyken

The Godparent Trap by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

Life’s Too Short meets The Unhoneymooners in this sparkling, steamy, and swoon-worthy novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, in which two sworn enemies must share house, home—and maybe their hearts—when they become co-parents after a sudden loss.

Colby’s living her best life: as a popular food blogger, she gets to fulfill her dreams of exploring the globe. But her world comes crashing down when a tragic accident leaves her co-guardian of her best friend’s two adorable children. Not only does she need to put down roots—fast—but she’ll be sharing custody with the one man she can’t stand sharing a continent with, let alone a house. 

Accountant-extraordinaire Rip values rules and plans. But when he loses his sister and his best friend and becomes an insta-guardian all in one night, Rip sees his organized life imploding. What he really doesn’t need is his sister’s irresponsible, flighty—albeit kind and gorgeous—best friend making it worse.

Rip doesn’t trust Colby to take their new responsibilities seriously, while Colby can’t believe Rip thinks children will thrive under his rigid control. Yet soon Rip and Colby discover they need each other more than they hate each other. Could it be possible that following their hearts is just what their new little family needs?

“I’m here. I can be your mess. I can be the chaos that you need.”

“You’re like a fucking hurricane–a chaotic beautiful mess of waves and wind, powerful, daunting, and any guy–especially ones like Banks–would risk his life during the storm just to see if he can survive it.”

From the moment I read the synopsis for The Godparent Trap, I knew I had to read this book and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Rachel Van Dyken delivered a heart-warming and emotional romantic comedy that gave me all the feels and had me believing in happily ever afters…

The Godparent Trap follows the story of Colby and Rip. Colby is living her best life while exploring the world and writing for a blog. Her life comes to a crashing halt when she’s named coguardian of her best friend’s children. She has no clue what she’s doing and to make matters worse, she’s got to figure it all out with her nemesis and best friend’s brother, Rip. Rip is a man who likes order and rules. The last thing he wants is a life filled with chaos. With no choice but to work together, Colby and Rip will soon find that the unexpected is just what they’ve been waiting for.

As one of my most anticipated reads, The Godparent Trap hit me with all the feels and is easily one of my top reads for 2022. This story is heartbreaking at times and will take your emotions on one heck of a ride. The chemistry between Colby and Rip is palpable and bleeds right off the pages. They hit all the marks with their opposites attract, grumpy/sunshine, enemies to lovers romance. And I honestly couldn’t get enough.

The Godparent Trap is a story of loss and grief. A story of learning to let go and just go with the flow. A story of finding peace and balance amongst all the chaos. Of an instant family and finding love in the most unexpected place. This story was well-written and thoroughly entertaining. I laughed. I teared up. I swooned. I fell completely in love with the chaotic mess and I never wanted it to end.
